"The whole friggin bunch is on drugs.."

Based upon all of the unhinged, incoherent posts from one in particular, someone else here at the MDN is obviously on drugs... Could it be Rush Limbaugh?

If not drugs, then at the very least the Fox Newz Channel... same difference.

The United States has some reconciling to do with the people of Iraq, and with the US citizens sent to Iraq to fight an illegal, immoral, and unnecessary war.

Peace and Semper Fidelis...

Republican Senators Vote against Veterans The Senate this week derailed a bill by Sen. Bernie Sanders that would have offered $21 billion in medical, educational, and job-training benefits for veterans. “It really was quite incredible to see almost all Republicans -- we got two -- almost all Republicans put their partisan loyalty ahead of the needs of the veterans in this country,” Sanders, the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee chairman, said in an interview Friday on MSNBC.

WOW! What's wrong with a Veteran using all his powers to try and make sure there are less Veterans in our future? Sounds admirable to me.

Perennial hypocrite Dick Cheney is criticizing the 5.6 reduction in our armed forces. Well guess how much Simon Bar Sinister proposed to cut our Armed Forces when he ran the Pentagon? A)...3.2% B)...4.6% C)...25%

C is for Cheney, The biggest hypocrite to ever have been in politics.

Spiro Agnew is thrilled that he is no longer the worst VP ever!

Actually, from previous post on the site, the indication was the MDN basis for removal is the number times the abuse button is hit. Assuming that is correct, rushslide, whistler, animal and others continually hit the button. I suspect that the problem lies with Rushslide and whistler. It would be based on the fact that they have no honest answers, as usual, and therefore want to stick the blogger. Obviously, the right sinks to lower lows which is not unusual.

I don't understand how you can blame those that want to goinpeas, have a long military career while staying on American soil, and retire and get bennies and pensions. We just have to look at it as a jobz, jobz, jobz program....and a stimulus of the economy. The military is no longer what it used to be, just as marriage is no longer what it used to be.....it's all moving us forword as a country....

One more example that shows how republicans hate veterans:

Republicans this week have grounded Senate action on important military issues to a halt by adding Iran sanctions measures to bills meant to combat military sexual assault and help America’s veterans. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) included an Iran sanctions provision in his alternative to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) vets bill, which would, according to the Hill, “boost veterans’ healthcare programs and give veterans in-state tuition rates at all schools across the country.”

Dick Cheney states President Barack Obama "would much rather spend the money on food stamps than he would on a strong military or support for our troops."

This from a man who got five deferrments from the draft while many in his generation didn't have that luxury. This from a man who said "I had better things to do" about serving in Vietnam. This from a man whose former employer received a no-bid contract that scammed BILLIONS from taxpayers. This man, like so many wingers has no conscience or credibility...
